Subject: [gentoo-dev] static vs dynamic doc ref?
Date: Tue, 06 Mar 2007 19:32:56
1 Can someone point me to the documentation regarding "If it's possible to create
2 either a dynamic or static library, you should create both." (paraphrase of
3 something vapier said at one point many moons ago, but I'm not trying to hold
4 mike against that). I ask because I sense a new release of perl looming in the
5 near future, and everytime one of the questions we're asked is why we build both
6 a static and a dynamic library for perl (and to be honest, since perl isn't one
7 of those apps you need running in an emergency single user boot - that i'm aware
8 of anyway - I never have a good reference).
10 And yes, given the option, I'd do away with sys-devel/libperl all together and
11 just build the library once, preferably dynamically since it leaves a smaller
12 footprint for perl ;)
